This is a 3 page set of notes on area designed for a 7th grade math intervention class. It includes finding area of triangles, squares, rectangles, trapezoids, parallelograms, and circles. As a bonus, I am including a free poster, "Tricks for Remembering Radius and Diameter." The notes provide the formulas, visual tiled representations of the first example, and assorted example problems that the class can work together and use later as a reference during independent practice.
I found this set very effective for teaching area using formulas and an excellent review of evaluating equations by substitution.
It is in the original, editable format so you can make any changes to suit your students' needs.
Be on the lookout for coordinating formula posters from Suzie's Angle!
